Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones diet mayo clinic


Avatar m tn May I ask, have you found websites that have particularly good information on MSK and stone production in general? I have visited the Mayo Clinic site because I always trust their information but would love any reference sites you may have. Thank you very much!
Avatar m tn At the same web address, there is a menu that will take you to the symptoms and treatments, too. The Mayo Clinic is a respected hospital that has many branches throughout the United States, but if you contact them via their website or by telephoning, they may be able to refer you to a hospital in the Ukraine or Europe that you could perhaps visit and get quality treatment.
Avatar f tn Looking for possible stones and see if they were working correctly. Right kidney slightly enlarged working at 40%, but told no sign of stones and maybe she was eating too many carbs and not enough fiber. In addition, plenty of people have worse kidney function and don’t feel pain, so the pain is not her kidney…And since blood pressure is low kidneys are probably not the problem. (I know she is not a high carb eater…but took it anyway.
482754 tn?1341795094 You can find this info online, but check several lists. Reputable sights like Mayo Clinic or Cleveland Clinic probably have good lists. Calcium Oxalate stones are commonly the stones that people form, so the same food info for people should apply to your dog also. Avoid foods with medium or high oxalate content and also keep calcium down in the diet. Increasing water intake is very important in avoiding stones. Do some research on how much your dog should have.
Avatar n tn I also have kidney stones chronically. I just got a CT scan yesterday, have a 4mm stone in my right kidney. My Dr said this should pass on its own. I once passed 18 stones in a 24 hour period, after lithography. That was awful. Nothing seems to work for me I am 47 and had them since I was a teenager. Seems the older I get the faster they come. My kidneys were clear in June, this is Aug and already have a 4mm stone, and passed a 2 or 3mm stone a couple weeks ago.
Avatar m tn People I know what I am talking about I have had kidney stones/kidney disease since 1965. Your doctor is wrong most kidney stones can be treated: the goal is to stop or slow down the formation of them. This is accomplished through metabolic testing... which many be done by a nephrologist in some parts of the US. Once it is determined what is causing the stones to form and the composition of them..
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm 16 years old and suffering from what I've been told is medullar sponge kidney disease. I have been to countless doctors, including the mayo clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, Children's hospital in St. Louis, and many local hospitals. Every doctor that I've seen has thrown around many ideas of what my disease "could" be, but none of them have ever actually diagnosed me. It started out as a kidney stone two years ago, had gotten better on and off for the past two years.
Avatar f tn We have had him to the Univeristy of Washington. and also the Mayo Clinic. Along with all the local hospital. i believe he has had every test possible. he has had problems with kidney stones. And has been told he has Celiac's. Most of his blood work up comes back abnormal. Each time its different. This last time his red blood cells were to high. Now he has cysts in his intestines and esophagus. He has gone threw around 22 surgeries to remeove them.
Avatar f tn Within a few months, a lost a tremendous amount of weight (I'm 5'8 annd went from 156 to 123) my hair was falling out in clumps (I had actual bald spots) I was twitching in my face, had muscle spasms, extreme fatigue, joint pain, night sweats, and more. After numerous tests and dr visits my parents sent me to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. We thought it was a thyroid disorder or cancer. What it was: #1-I was going through full blown menopause.
389797 tn?1200693362 He's ready to send me to Mayo or Iowa City. I am desperate. I have been away from my job on unpaid leave for over 4 weeks now. I am afraid to drive or leave the house for fear that I may soil myself in public. Anxiety and depression are worse. My friends and family offer to stop and visit but I don't want to see them like this.
Avatar n tn I have been seen by over 30 specialists and have had a full work up at the Mayo Clinic. After suffering with this for 12 years now I am finally seeking help from a pain management specialist (this was the only recomendation the Mayo Clinic could give me). I have tried every anti-spasmatic available including nitro with no relief. I have been taking Darvocet preventitively and 10mg of valium before meals.
2053959 tn?1330448602 The sand, hurts sometimes just as much as a full on stone. Do you have a nephrologist? I have been seen at the Mayo Clinic and they always told me Urologist are good, but they only know how to help short term (like surgery), they don't know how to help long term (like with diets and such.) A nephrologist should help watch your son long term and help with prevention.
1452192 tn?1294930531 I had 2 positive ANA tests but also has 2 neg ones. In 2008 I developed sever kidney pain. They thought it was stones or a kidney infection..they did a urinary scope and found almost hive/freckles in my bladder leading up into my kidney. My Dr had never seen them before so he sent them to mayo clinic to see if they could help with a diagnosis. They as well had no idea. I have been told it is a connective tissue disease but they arent sure which auto immune disease it is.
1113762 tn?1266119076 he explained my pain like and amputee and the phantom pain they have where the amputation had occurred. He put this into example of my kidneys and all the stones my kidney had made and passed. He said the nerves in my kidneys were damaged from the stones and they were having pain even without passing a stone. He then put me on neurontin for the "nerve pain" and referred me to the pain clinic. There are 2 different pain clinics.
Avatar f tn Esophageal Dysmotility/Reflux Heart Murmur/MVP Arthritis Kidney Stones Restrictive Lung Disease (mild) Vasculitis Telangastacia Antiphoshlipid Antibody Syndrome My current meds are: Arava 10mg, Zoloft 50mg, Prevacid 30mg, multi-vitamin at night Plaquenil 200mg twice a day Sorry this is long, but I need some input.
Avatar m tn Metallic taste in mouth: A cause for concern? A metallic taste in the mouth is a fairly common problem — and usually not serious. Although you don't have actual taste buds that detect metals, the perception of the taste is described as "metallic." A metallic taste can be due to many factors.
Avatar f tn Pyelonephritis – infection of the kidney Glomerulonephritis (kidney inflammation), kidney cyst or tumor Urinary stones LEFT ADRENAL GLAND The adrenal gland, also known as the suprarenal gland, is located on the top of the kidney. It has two distinct layers, the medulla and cortex, which secrete various hormones that play important roles in the body. Adrenal adenoma (benign tumor) Adrenal carcinoma also known as adrenocortical carcinoma.
Avatar n tn Also, I read somewhere once that sometimes when the blood needs to reduce it's volume, that excessive urination will follow. I like the Mayo Clinic website, and sometimes WebMD, but failing that, I just google things and see what turns up more than a few times.
Avatar f tn No standard doctor, even a ID doc, will be able to figure this out. Type in Lymes/mycoplasma/Mayo clinic, Cleveland clinic, etc and read the responses who said they went to the Mayo as well and were told they were fine. Lymes/mycoplasmas causes chronic inflamation throughout your body, BUT your tests will vary a little from the baseline. A little above, a little below but nothing out of the ordinary. That's why these bacteria are known as Stealth Pathogens.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately, I have been to about 30 different doctors in my life for all my physical ailments and have yet to find one that really listens to my issues and tries to figure out what the source of the problem could be. Maybe that will all change at Mayo Clinic, I am crossing my fingers. I feel I am doing absolutely everything I can with diet and exercise.
Avatar n tn I do pretty well and after a week or so at this temp. pains gets better. I have been to hospitals including mayo clinic. I with I could tell you what it is but I cant. I well tell you it is real.If I find the answere Ill post on this site.
Avatar m tn With the symptoms you describe and the pelvic floor area pain, you may have kidney stones. That is why it is important to get the urine checked and ask the doctor to do a kidney function test and also record your blood pressure and possibly send you for an ultra sound of the urinary tract. If your blood pressure is elevated over a course of 3 weeks with other causes being ruled out, the doctor may put you on medication for this.
Avatar f tn Primary hyperparathyroidism removes the calcium from your teeth and bones and deposits the calcium in your kidneys (kidney stones), bladder, blood vessels, muscles, and body organs. The doctors at Mayo Clinic tested my hydroxyapatite crystals, which are clinically elevated, but did not do anything with the results. My mother and grandmother had these same problems, which their doctors only prescribed pain medicine.
Avatar f tn Finally got a copy of my US report and it basically says that I have a fatty liver (which I knew) and small kidney stones with no hydronephrosis (swelling of the kidneys). I have not seen the Dr. yet, but it appears that she isn't going to follow up as there must not be a significant issue for me. Do you guys know the answer to these questions? If the liver is enlarged, would it show that on the report?
Avatar m tn Left Kidney Cyst; Gall bladder with 'numerous' stones; very low white blood count and platelets; MELD of 14 and Pugh -C. Finally, I experience every symptom (including severe and passing put pain) except for yellowing or a basketball stomach. PROBLEM FOR 14 months: No Hep C treatment, it will kill you. Too early for transplant list as you only have a 10% chance of survival; and we'll follow you every 3 months. Now I await the excuse for not taking away the gall bladder.
Avatar n tn I am hoping the the off-base ENDO consultation will just guide me whether to have the ENT guy do full or partial removal. I have also requested via Mayo's email request system, an appointment at the MAYO clinic in Jacksonville, FLA, a bit of a drive, and insurance will not cover it as "out of plan" but worth it for a consultation I think. I will not delay surgery to get the opinion at MAYO though. I am also still thinking of flying up to Washington D.
Avatar f tn At one point he was taking about a dozen different pills a day. That year, my husband developed gall bladder stones, kidney stones, had his appendix removed, and found skin cancer. Please let me know how it goes for you, and if you find any great dysautonomia doctors, please share the info. Thanks and be well!
Avatar f tn It is a completly non-invasive test that visualizes the biliary tract to see if any stones, sludge or abnormailites are present. Most docs would do the MRCP first to see if anything can be seen. Then if nothing is located, or if an obstruction is present and the pain continues, and ERCP with manometry would be the next step. If your doc does suggest the ERCP with manometry, make sure that the sphincter is ONLY CUT if the pressures exceed 40.
Avatar m tn S, and active in NY Presbyterian Medical Center), as well as places like the Mayo Clinic. (personally, when it comes to pain management, I have to recommend one hold the mayo). There are dozens more. These hospitals use a team approach to treatment. Let your fingers do the walking for a local university teaching hospital.Message me privately and I can probably recommend someone relatively close to you. Remember, most doctors have the self image of a quivering bowl of jello, so go easy on them.
Avatar m tn Beside stones, there may be a "biliary sludge" in the gb, which is a kind of pre-stones bile - stones will eventually develop from it. Ultrasound often can't detect this sludge. CT is much better for detecting sludge, but even this is not entirely reliable. HIDA is most reliable, but it actually doesn't show stones, but only gb function. So, it is possible that someone have lowered gb function due to stress or "unknown reason".
